Hi everyone,

I can't boot from M.2 SSD connected to PCI-E via an adapter. Does this motherboard support boot from PCI-E slot?

I would send a support ticket to ASRock and ask:
https://event.asrock.com/tsd.asp

They will know for certain and what steps you need to follow if it is possible.

The PCIE slot on the board has only one PCI Express 2.0 lane, for an M.2, you must have at least 4 lanes, so it will not work.
The M.2 key E slot, is meant for Wifi cards, it cannot handle an M.2
Kind Regards
